The 5th annual Utah Bike Summit presented by Bike Utah was held Friday April 27th at the University of Utah Guest House. Presenters came from across the State, and shared their passion and vision for the future of cycling in Utah. The keynote address was given by Tim Blumenthal of Bikes Belong, the bicycle industries association, and the group behind People for Bikes, an initiative aimed at developing 1 million supporters of cycling in the United States. Check them out at peopleforbikes.org. We heard from several communities about the state of cycling in their area, and we were privileged to hear from a distinguished panel consisting of Carlos Braceras of UDOT, Wayne Niederhauser, President of the Utah Senate, Andrew Jackson from MAG, Andrew Gruber from WFRC, and Michael Allegra of UTA. Mountain biking was also well represented with presentations by Trails Utah and others. Bike Utah would like to thank all of our sponsors, speakers and attendees for making the 5th Utah Bike Summit a great success. It was a great way to start off Bike Month.
Slideshows of the presentations will be posted on bikeutah.org.
